Prove Me Wrong

  1. 1. 📺 💡 by Joy Meredith
  2. 2. Piers Morgan left Good Morning Britain last week and it set Twitter a flutter over if he was wronged or was out of line. The subject was The Royals but the fight has been the same for years now… What is “cancel culture” and what is being held accountable?
  3. 3. Shortly after his departure Alex (GMB’s weatherman) voiced that he didn’t want Piers gone, just to listen.
  4. 4. After Maria Shriver tweeted about Alex’s response and the need for listening and understanding I responded…
  5. 5. Maria liked my tweet and even though I was kinda kidding when I wrote it, I really do believe we need a new way to debate ideas. And not to score points but to challenge ourselves and each other to evolve. No one knows it all… yet we’re all so sure we’re right.
  6. 6. We need to normalize folks taking in fresh perspectives, listening to experts and others’ opinions and expanding our own understanding. Our world is facing real challenges beyond royal rumblings… if we keep dividing ourselves into tribal sides we won’t ever solve deep problems. Racism, gun safety, income inequality, human rights, the climate crisis. Squabbling is one way to air our viewpoint, intellectual debate and problem solving is by far better.
  7. 7. So Piers, I’m sure you will receive offers coming in to do tabloid trash TV or faux-outrage Fox-like programming but instead you could use your gifts to make debate a new format for good… because there’s so many to be proven wrong and so much to be made right in our world! Find me @JoyMeredith to discuss further. And Maria, if he’s a pass we can call it Prove Us Wrong and with a few tweaks make it our own 😜
